Jon Stewart took apart the hypocritical Republicans who keep saying we don't need any new gun regulations, because we already have laws on the books that aren't being enforced... because they made sure there was no way the ATF could actually do its job.

And as Stewart pointed out, they haven't had a permanent director "since Congress required its director to face Senate confirmation in 2006, mostly because of objections to each of the nominees from Republicans and gun rights groups." Sadly as Stewart discussed here as well, they've been making the agency work with both of their hands tied behind their back.
